Shaw University Bulletin 



The Summer Session is intended to provide instruction for regular 
students of this and other colleges and universities and for those engaged 
during the winter in teaching. 


The location of Shaw University is especially convenient, situated 
practically in the heart of the Capital City. No car or cab fares will he 
necessary to visit the shopping district, State Department of Education, 
State Museum, State Library, Hall of History, and other places of 
educational interest. An exceedingly bracing and healthful climate makes 
this city an ideal place for residence and study. 


The faculty for the Summer Session will be composed primarily of 
the regular members of the Shaw University faculty, together with 
additional specialists in the field of education. 


A well-equipped and attractive library, consisting of approximately 
19,000 books, is located in Tyler Hall. It is supervised by a competent 
librarian who aids the students in their reference work and guides them 
in their general reading. Magazines and daily and weekly newspapers 
provide means for the information of students on current events. It is 
the aim of the Administration to make the library a place of great use- 
fulness in the education of the students in technical knowledge and 
general culture. 


Local conditions make it impossible for the University to offer 
observation and directed teaching facilities during the summer. 


Persons desiring dormitory accommodations during the Summer 
School should indicate that fact to the Registrar, not later than June 2 ; 
send key deposit of $2.00 with application prior to that date, making 
moner-order payable to Shaw University. The University has adequate 
housing for those who desire to live on the campus. The women students 
are under the supervision of the Dean of Women who is assisted by 
dormitory hostesses, and the men students are under the supervision of 
the Dean of Men and assistants. 

Shaw University Bulletin 


Tennis, croquet, Softball, and sightseeing tours are among the forms 
of recreation provided by the University. 

In addition, several social events are held for the students and 
faculty of the Summer School. 


The Bureau has secured each year a large number of teaching and 
administrative positions for students and former students. It exists 
for the double purpose of supplying the needs of school officials over 
the State and of helping students and former students to find teaching 
and administrative positions for which they are best suited. 


Assembly exercises are held in Greenleaf Memorial Hall on Mon- 
days, Wednesdays, and Fridays. All students are invited to attend these 
exercises. Special addresses are arranged and interesting recitals 


Teachers are requested to bring their certificates, credit slips from 
summer schools previously attended, diplomas, or other evidences of 
training. These will be needed for registration the first day. Xo student 
should expect to enter and receive credit after Friday, June 10. 


Written application should be made and forwarded in advance. A 
transcript signed by the president or principal of the school attended, 
containing a full record of the subjects pursued by the student with 
the time devoted to each, and his standing in the same, should be sent 
to the Registrar of the University before the student registers. Appli- 
cation blanks will be furnished on request and should be filled out and 
returned promptly. 

Courses are organized to serve the needs of the following persons : 

(a) High School graduates 

(b) College students 

(c) College graduates interested in renewing certificates 

(d) Holders of any of the following certificates : 

1. Elementary — any class 

2. Primary "C", "B", "A"

Shaw University Bulletin 11 


Because of the success of the workshop-seminar of other years, plans 
are being made to provide a workshop-seminar for teachers, principals, 
and supervisors. The workshop-seminar is designed to give its members 
an opportunity to clarify their thinking on problems of educational 
philosophy, and to give them assistance in defining educational objec- 
tives. Each member will be given a chance to work on problems which 
are encountered in his particular school situation. Those who bring 
similar problems will be encouraged to work in small, informal groups. 
In addition, they will have easy access to the services of a group of 
sympathetic and competent workshop specialists. 

Those who attend will be given credit for six semester hours. These 
hours will fulfill the state's requirement for certificate renewal, and, at 
the same time, will satisfy a requirement in reading or methods for 
those who may be changing a high school certificate to a primary or 
grammar grade A. 

Those interested in the development of reading programs for their 
schools will be given opportunities to work in this area. Members of 
our staff, persons from the State Department of Public Instruction, 
and competent workshop consultants from colleges and universities in 
this section will be available for special assistance. 

Begistration for workshop will begin June 8. Special fee of $6.00 
in addition to regular charges. 

For further information, please feel free to communicate with the 
Director of Summer School.

TWO WEEKS : Beginning Monday, June 13, and ending Fridav, June 
24, 1955 

Shaw University is pleased to offer this summer a two weeks' study 
course for ministers who desire to improve themselves in literary back- 
ground and in Bible study. These are not courses for college credit, but 
are designed for ministers who do not have the credits necessary for 
college admission. 

The classes will meet from Monday to Friday of each week so that 
ministers may return to their church fields if desired. The fees will be 
$10.00 a week including course fees, room and board for those who bring 
their sheets, pillow cases, and towels. The charges will be $12.00 per 
week for those who do not bring their linen. Persons not living in the 
dormitories will pay $4.50 a week. A laboratory fee of $1.00 will be 
paid by each student for materials to be used in the handicrafts course. 
About $5.00 will be needed for books and other supplies. For further 
information, write to Dr. Grady D. Davis, Shaw University, Raleigh, 
North Carolina. 


TWO WEEKS : Beginning Monday, June 13, and ending Friday, June 
24, 1955 

This summer Shaw University continues a summer study program 
for Missionary Women as another phase of the program of the Mis- 
sionary Training Department. The work will be so organized that over 
a period of years, women who have completed the total program will 
receive a certificate. These are not the courses which are to be taken by 
the students in the college working for the A.B. degree with a major in 
Religious Education, but are designed for women who are already in 
the missionary program in their churches, or wish to prepare themselves 
for the improvement of such activities. 

Classes meet from Monday to Friday of each week so that the Mis- 
sionary Workers may return home each weekend, if desired. The fees 
will be $10.00 a week including course fees, room and board for those 
who bring their sheets, pillow cases, and towels. The charges will be 
$12.00 a week for those who do not bring their linen. Persons not living 
in the dormitories will pay $4.50 a week. A laboratory fee of $1.00 will
